• A criminal complaint against the suspect alleged Angela Kukawski was tortured
  • The oolice said Jason Baker killed the victim in their house

Almost a week after a 55-year-old Los Angeles woman, who was the former business manager of Nicki Minaj and the Kardashians, was found dead in her car, her boyfriend was arrested in connection to the case.

Angela Kukawski was found dead in her car in Simi Valley, northwest of Los Angeles, on Dec. 23, a day after she was reported missing. According to the police, Kukawski’s boyfriend, Jason Baker, 49, allegedly killed her in their Sherman Oaks home, and then placed her body in the car and drove it to Simi Valley. Baker parked the car there and left Kukawski’s body inside, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement Wednesday.

A criminal complaint filed with Los Angeles County prosecutors and obtained by Associated Press alleged Kukawski died from sharp and blunt force injuries to her head and neck. She was also strangled, the Ventura County coroner said.

Baker was arrested Tuesday, and charged with one count of premeditated murder and one count of torture Wednesday. He is being held at the Van Nuys Jail on a $3 million bail.

Kukawski worked for the Los Angeles-based Boulevard Management firm, and was a mother of five. Her celebrity clients include rappers Kanye West and Offset, the Kardashians and the estate of Tupac Shakur, Variety reported.

"We are saddened and heartbroken by the loss of our colleague, Angie Kukawski," Todd Bozick of Boulevard Management said in a statement to Variety. "Angie was a kind, wonderful person, and she will be greatly missed by all who knew her."

The motive behind the crime was unclear, and the police have not released any additional information about the circumstances of the crime.

"Angela was truly the best. She cared about every one of us and made things happen that were impossible," the Kardashian-Jenner family said in a statement, KNBC reported. "She will be greatly missed and we send our sincere condolences to her family and loved ones during this most difficult time.”

Anyone with more information regarding the case was requested to contact the Los Angeles Police Department, Valley Bureau Homicide, at 818-374-9550.
